4 Key Denim Pieces to Wear Now
Reliable, timeless and staple: these are just three words we associate with denim. But that’s not to say it’s immune to a little seasonal shake-up. The perfect blue jeans may be one of the soundest investments to make in your wardrobe, but there’s more than one way to incorporate this hard-working fabric into your rotation.
Fashion fades, denim jackets are eternal – mythologised by style icons from Steve McQueen to Claudia Schiffer. This season’s cream of the crop comes via Los Angeles brand Mother. Its Triangle Drifter jacket (pictured) is washed in the most perfect mid-blue shade, channelling vintage silhouettes with a twist. Plus, it’s cut from the brand’s signature Superior denim – a semi-rigid, 100% cotton denim that’s designed to get better with age. This one’s for life. Want to double up? Add a retro tee and turn it into a co-ord with the High-Waisted Spinner Skimp jeans. Their loose, wide-leg cut will perfectly balance the jacket’s proportions.

A staple of the spring/summer months, white denim holds a certain Gallic allure that elevates it to slightly more sophisticated levels than its stonewashed counterpart. Whether in a worker-style Loewe jacket or chic Totême jeans, all shades of cream, ecru and ivory are key to a capsule wardrobe – they’ll pair with everything, including your other denim favourites.
We’ve come a long way since Britney and Justin’s denim double-act at the 2001 American Music Awards – yet the power of Y2K perseveres. The ‘jean dress’ of today ranges from Magda Butrym’s bustier midi to Prada’s oversized shirts or Alexander McQueen’s A-line minis – all of which make for prime layering potential for your day-to-day.

A denim skirt is a transeasonal hero. These pieces will look as stylish with sandals and a tank top as they will with knee-high boots and knitwear.
